TAMPA - TJ Oshie had three goals and an assist while Justin Williams and John Carlson had early third-period goals as the Washington Capitals clinched a play-off spot by beating the Tampa Bay Lightning 5-3 on Saturday night.
Oshie scored twice, including an early powerplay goal, as the Capitals took a 2-0 lead midway through the first. He completed the hat-trick with an empty-netter during the final minute. Oshie has 10 goals and 19 points in 14 games against Tampa Bay.
Williams had a redirection goal 3:14 into the period before Carlson swatted a thigh-high puck home to make it 4-2 at 5:30.
